Episode 27: Being a Role Model

Justin Seedman & Michael Mantell, PhD


Children often look up to their parents, paying attention and imitating adults that surround them. Would this mean that fit parents often raise fit kids? Tune in and enjoy a lively discussion with Dr. Mantell and Justin Seedman, ACE Certified Personal Trainer and the founder of JustinFit, LLC, on the impact that healthy and unhealthy parents have on their children.

About Justin Seedman

After graduating from Florida International University with a bachelor’s degree in physical education, Justin began his career as a P.E. teacher for the Broward School District. Driven by a desire to combat childhood obesity, he also served youth by coaching wrestling, and track and field. After budget cuts led to an elimination of his position, Justin reinvented himself by becoming an ACE-certified Personal Trainer and Health Coach. In 2007, he founded JustinFit LLC, which evolved into South Florida’s premiere in-home personal training practice. He now leads a team of highly qualified and enthusiastic coaches who have successfully helped thousands of individuals create a healthy lifestyle change. He also gives back by helping nonprofits including Kids in Distress, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, American Cancer Society and other philanthropic organizations.
